(CLOSED) HOLIDAY GIVEAWAY!!! +NewYorkColor Holiday Silver Eyes Tutorial

This is my first Holiday makeup of the year! Can you believe it's December already? Time is going by so quick. I'm not sure if I like it. But I'm very excited though. Christmas is my absolute favorite Holiday. Kiko and I just finished putting up our very first Christmas tree. It looks and smells wonderful. We love it.

For this look, I was inspired by the gorgous photo below by NYC New York Colors. I re-created the model's makeup on the left with shimmery silver eyes and rosy pink lips. It's such a pretty combo. Silver is such a festive color and the rosy pink lips made it easy to wear.You can wear it for Holiday parties, date night with your man or pretty much any night time occasion. 

I hope you like it.

I used NYC New York Color Individual Eyes Created for Smokey Browns eyeshadow palette. The colors are pigmented and easy to blend. I also love, love the primer that it comes with. It works!

Try a pair of fun and flirty false lashes this Holiday. It will make your eyes look bigger and add more drama to your look.

  27. Love the Silver Shadow, perfect for this everything a glitter time of year. Full of silver shimmering and shine, what better way to draw a mans look to your eyes. My absolute favorite NYC item is my NYC Liquid LipShine in Nude York City, its my go to color when wanting that all natural look. You know the one ladies, where we take 30 minutes everyday making our faces look like we have nothing on at all. Just jumped up, through our hair in a pony and out the door we went.NYC makeup makes it all effortless, Love IT!
